Her jewelry designs are simple and elegant and seems to be made to highlight the essence of the woman that will wore them.
I was very happy that she accepted to make this interview with me!
Me: Can you tell me a little bit about you?
Diana: My name is Diana , I am a 50 year old Mother of 4 children, 3 are grown and 1 little girl I am still raising. I am married to the same man that I met when I was 17 years old. We live in the Catskill Mountains in NYS. I have been working as a Real Estate Agent for the past 5 years. I have been an on off stay at home mom for many years. I love the mountains. We live in a wooded area surrounded by nature that inspires me everyday.
Me: How did you become a jewelry designer?
Diana: Fashion has always interested me. Design and color relax me. I am the happiest when I am creating. In 2008 I started to make jewelry. It just seemed like the right thing for me to do. I am self taught.
Me: Where do you get your inspiration?
Diana: Everywhere! I will dream about it or see something somewhere in nature or a building or pattern and then interpret it my way. There are no rules so that freedom just takes on a pace of its own.
Me: What are your goals?
Diana: Right now I just want to continue to make people feel enlightened when they wear a piece I make. This is not just what I gain from the creating but from what others gain from owning it. Stones , pearls, crystals are very conductive in aiding us in healing and opening new areas of our inner selves.
Me: Do you believe in your lucky star?
Diana: A lucky star tell me more lol. I love astrology and tarot have been doing reading for years. So I believe that there are many stars affecting us daily.
Me: Do you have periods of doubts?
Diana: We all have moments of doubts. With pain comes growth, it can be difficult sometimes.
Me: How do you deal with those periods of doubts?
Diana: Many times I can feel blocked so it is time for me to seek out new areas of design or set aside the work that is giving me doubt and come back to it later. I will go very deep inside myself before I surface again.
Me: What method do you use to find back your energy?
Diana: I love to garden this always helps or visit people and go different places. I like to meditate. Sometimes I just need to rest.
Me: Is it effective?
Diana: yes very effective?
Me: What is your motto in life?
Thank you Diana!
